The San Francisco 49ers are prepared to release receiver Stevie Johnson in an effort to create more salary-cap room before the start of the new league year on March 10, according to numerous reports.

Cutting Johnson would save the 49ers $6.025 million in cap space, according to overthecap.com.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson is only 28 and is a good possession receiver so he shouldn't be unemployed for long.

49ers WR Stevie Johnson (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington played the 4th- and 5th-most snaps in Week 14, so they should see the biggest bump in playing time. Brandon Lloyd was a healthy inactive against Oakland.

WR Brandon Lloyd made his first impact on Sunday, catching three passes for 76 yards while seeing significant time as the 49ers’ No. 3 wide receiver.

Stevie Johnson saw just five snaps on offense in the entire game but still managed to catch a touchdown pass.

Rookie Bruce Ellington was on the field for eight plays, which included one rush attempt for no yards and his first NFL reception for just 1 yard.

Fantasy Impact:

Through five games, Johnson is the 49ers’ third-leading receiver with 15 receptions for 183 yards and two touchdowns, while Lloyd has six catches for 109 yards. It could have just been part of the plan this week, or it could be a trend that sees Lloyd get more time. Both Johnson and Lloyd would be risky plays regardless, but it's worth monitoring in deeper leagues.

49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 1. The questionable tag is a bit worrisome, but Crabtree’s calf injury isn’t considered serious, so he should be fine for a terrific matchup against the Cowboys. This is definitely something worth monitoring throughout the weekend, however. Complicating matters, the 49ers play in the late round of games on Sunday. Stevie Johnson and/or Brandon Lloyd figure to step in if Crabtree can’t go. Anquan Boldin would be the player to start though.

The 49ers brought back Brandon Lloyd this offseason. They also acquired Stevie Johnson and drafted Bruce Ellington. And Quinton Patton has flashed this offseason. So who is in line to be the 49ers' No. 3 receiver, behind starters Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree? The position seemed earmarked for Johnson but he did not get much run in the third preseason game. The 49ers may use this game to get a better feel on their third receiver, even if Kaepernick is long gone from the game and Blaine Gabbert and Josh Johnson are the ones throwing the ball. In any event, coach Jim Harbaugh said he felt "very good" about Stevie Johnson being on the 49ers' 53-man roster.
